Charlotte-Indiana two-game contract trimmed to one game

By Kevin Kelley -

The Indiana Hoosiers and the Charlotte 49ers have trimmed down their two-game football contract to a single game, according to a copy of an amendment obtained by Agent49.

Indiana and Charlotte were scheduled to play two football games at Memorial Stadium in Bloomington, Indiana, on  Sept. 23, 2023 and then again the following season on Sept. 28, 2024.

The two schools signed the original agreement back in 2015, which called for Indiana to pay Charlotte a $1 million guarantee for a contest in 2022 and a $1.1 million guarantee for a contest in 2023.

The contract was amended in 2017, pushing the games to 2023 and 2024 and changing the guarantees to $1.1 million and $1.3 million, respectively.

According to the latest amendment, Charlotte will now travel to take on Indiana at Memorial Stadium in Bloomington on Sept. 21, 2024. The game will mark the first-ever meeting between the two schools.

Indiana now needs one non-conference game for the 2023 season. The Hoosiers are scheduled to host UMass on Sept. 9 and play Louisville on Sept. 16 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis that season.

The Hoosiers’ 2024 non-conference schedule is complete. In addition to hosting Charlotte, Indiana will host FIU on Aug. 31 and travel to Louisville on Sept. 7.

Charlotte has one non-conference opening for their schedule n both 2023 and 2024. Their 2023 schedule features games at Maryland on Sept. 9, home vs. Georgia State on Sept. 16, and at Florida on Nov. 18.

In 2024, Charlotte is scheduled to host East Carolina on Aug. 31 and travel to North Carolina on Sept. 7 and Indiana on Sept. 28.
